Random Shit: Ministry's Al Jourgensen Collapses At Paris Show, Olivia Tremor Control Singer Bill Doss Passes Away, Rick's Picks Exhibit Opens August 11, and MORE!

This past Saturday, Al Jourgensen collapsed during a Ministry show in Paris. What got my attention, of course, was the headline that Rolling Stone was running at the time, saying that Jourgenson had suffered a "full system collapse". Call me crazy, but when I see the words "full system collapse", I think "dead" so it was with a HUGE bit of dread that I clicked on the story.
Come to find out it was just a case of dehydration because, it would seem, Uncle Al still enjoys a bit of the bubbly before a show, during and presumably after a show.
Jourgensen, through his Facebook page, apologized and said, "I will make it up to you, somehow." We at The Shit wish Al a speedy recovery.
The news from the Olivia Tremor Control camp is much sadder as singer/guitarist Bill Doss, 43, has passed away. At this time, the cause of his death is unknown and comes just weeks after the band performed on Friday, July 13th at the Pitchfork Music Festival.
For longtime fans of the band Cheap Trick, August 11th can't come soon enough. That's when Rick Nielsen's "Rick's Picks" exhibit opens at the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, IL, showing off a lifetime of guitars, photos, and other one-of-a-kind artifacts from a musical journey that spans six decades and shows no signs of slowing down. The Burpee Museum is located at 737 North Main Street, Rockford, IL 61103. For more info on the exhibit, visit the Rick's Picks website.
